Nothing says Merry Christmas like a set of amazing masks! This value set would be the absolute perfect gift for all those skin care junkies out there. You can grab this set at Sephora for $76 ($130 value). It is definitely a splurge, but it is worth every single penny. These are luxury masks great for special events or for those days where you want to give your skin a nice little treat. Keep on reading to find out why you need these in your life this holiday season!
- THIRSTYMUD- Hydrating Treatment
Overview: This is the perfect mask to achieve that flawless JLo glow. And let’s be real, who doesn’t want that dewy, glowing skin that JLo seems to effortlessly rock. This mask provides deep hydration and locks in moisture to really plump up and hydrate your skin. This is definitely a must have, especially for the dry winter months.
Formulation: This smells absolutely divine! It has traces of coconut and honey, and just smells like a sweet treat! It has a smooth silky texture and glides right onto the skin.
Application: Apply this all over your face for about 15-20 min then rinse off with warm water. Personally, my favourite method is to leave this on overnight, and seriously guys, you will wake up with the most hydrated and glowing skin.
Packaging: You get the full-sized container containing 1.7 oz. A little goes a long way and this will last you forever!
- SUPERMUD- Clearing Treatment
Overview: This would have to be my favourite of all the masks, achieving that “holy grail” status. It works wonders on your skin with one application. It goes deep within your pores to draw out all that gunk, leaving your skin feeling fresh and smooth. What I love about this mask is that you can actually see it working right before your eyes! My skin is left feeling super clean and smooth every single time!
Formulation: It contains Activated-X Charcoal, which extracts the oil and dirt clogged deep within your pores. As the mask dry’s, you will notice little dots where this extraction process is happening. It is both exciting and slightly disgusting to see. This mask has a fresh minty scent, which adds to that clean and fresh feeling. In terms of texture, it is slightly grainy containing traces of eucalyptus leaf, but still glides on quite nice.
Application: Apply a thin layer all over your face for about 15-20 min, or until hardened, then rinse off with warm water. You can even apply this to blemishes as a spot treatment. This mask followed by the hydrating treatment is pure gold!
Packaging: You get the mini sized container containing 0.5 oz. Again, a little goes a long way.
- YOUTHMUD- Exfoliating treatment
Overview: This mask is great for removing all those dead skin cells and softening the texture of your skin. I have to say; I don’t like this mask as much as the others. My skin is quite sensitive and I felt that this was a little too harsh for my skin. However, it is still a great exfoliating treatment that will suit normal skin types.
Formulation: Like the other masks, this too, smells fantastic! It literally smells like green tea, which I enjoy. I’m not a huge fan of the texture as it quite chunky making it hard to evenly apply over the skin.
Application: Apply a thin layer all over your face for about 10 min then rinse off with warm water. You will experience a slight tingling sensation with this mask.
Packaging: You get the mini sized container containing 0.5 oz. As I said before, a little goes a long way!
You can purchase this gift set or the full-sized individual masks at Sephora. If you are picking this up for your self, I would suggest going to your local Sephora and getting a sample of these masks to try out before you take the plunge, as it is quite pricey. Whether this is a gift for yourself or a loved one, it is surely a glamorous treat anyone would love to have! Hopefully this helps some of you narrow down your holiday list. Happy shopping!
